Earlier this year, I submitted work from several (6-10) of my students to the national art contest for students in grades Kindergarten through twelfth grade entitled Celebrating Art. Six of my students' artworks were selected for the contest and publication. Yesterday I learn that from over 1500 entries, one of my fourth grader's artworks was selected as one of the top ten based on originality and creativity! My student is the only Georgia student to place in the top ten in this national contest. His/Her artwork -along with my other students accepted into the contest- will be published in the upcoming anthology, Celebrating Art – Fall 2010 and as a top ten winner, s/he received a $50 U.S. Savings Bond.
The above picture is the piece that placed in the top ten.
